I got home from work today and opened my mailbox to find four envelopes today!  Not only did I get some from this swap, but also from my angels for the October and September swap!  So, those ones are in their perspective galleries as well.

From ThreadOrYarn for my COMPOGNO theme:

Its like a zentangle letter!  How cool!!!

From Ysmeine for my COMPOGNO theme:

Octopus treasure!  It came in a super cute little envelope with tentacles and there was also this cute little scrappy circle.  The back of the circle has a bird on it.  I love all the different patterned papers that she used on my card!

And from RobinPich for my COMPOGNO theme (she also angeled for me for september, and one of them are for that):

YAY YAY!  I've been pining for one of her sewn ones, and I got two!!  Yay yay!  My last name is sure coming along!

Thank you for all the lovely cards, ladies!

392  My Poinsettia Wreath in Winter Holidays by jillybeans on: November 20, 2011 09:09:28 PM
I JUST finished my Christmas wreath for my door.  What can I say, inspiration struck me.  I designed it in my head right as I was trying to fall asleep one night this past week.  Isn't that how it always work?  Anywho, it was supremely easy to make and really didn't require much to do.

Here is the finished product:


And here are the shots of it coming together:

Here are all the components that went into the wreath.  It took a poinsettia stem, two super cool ornaments that I got at JoAnn's, and some berry picks.  Not shown is my glue gun, scissors and wire.  I hot glued on the ornaments to start with and then secured each with a couple pieces of wire on each end.


And here it is with the berry picks put in, and a couple of the leaves from the poinsettia stem that I glued in.  Voila!  Super easy and fast wreath!





Don't worry, the wreath isn't currently residing on my door.  It was just up for picture taking sake.  It will go up officially after Thanksgiving!  Yay!

Thanks for looking!

I'm such a slacker!  I received from mountains and clouds ages ago!  She is so wonderful and sent me one of my Harry Potter ABCs just for hosting.  Awww!  Isn't she the greatest!  Here are all the lovely cards she sent me:


She sent me two of the Vs because she started to color one in the wrong way.  But I love them both!  And she sent me a lovely paisley mustache card.  They are wonderful!

And I received from coryjo yesterday!  She claimed me for my wine theme:

Its sparkly and fabulous!  I love it!

Thanks, ladies, for the wonderful cards!

395  Yeti Stuffie! Squeee!!! (WARNING: Lots of pictures!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: November 15, 2011 10:20:40 AM
My partner in the One Tiny Stuffie Swap Round 8 listed mythical creatures as one of her desired stuffiness.  After some research, her Yeti came to life!

Meet Mogi!

Mogi is a from a pattern I made myself.  He is made of fur, blue felt for his face, safety eyes, and poly-fil!


Mogi's favorite pass times are building snowmen, making and eating snow cones and sledding.


Here's his furry little backside.  ^_^


And all dolled up and ready to be sent to his new home in Canada.  I also whipped up a quick watercolor of the stuffie that I sent along with him, since he's so handsome.  He has a tag that explains his likes, and the back explains that he suffers from major bed head and needs to be brushed regularly to maintain optimal handsomeness.

AAAAANNNNND I loved him so much, I made one for myself!  ^_^

Meet Migo, Mogi's twin brother!  (Yay for Yeti pals!)

Migo's loves snow shoeing, snow ball fights, and licking icicles.  He's a bit of a dare-devil!  And his hair shows for it, because no matter the grooming, it is untamible!


Furry backside shot and contemplative above shot!


Strike a pose, Migo! 

Thanks for looking!  If anyone is interested, I would be willing to post my extremely simple pattern!

396  Tree Stenciled Tote in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: November 15, 2011 09:32:54 AM
I recently participated in the FOC Raffle Swap Round 10.  For it you had to decide what your best craft was.  My husband told me it was stenciling.  So, I went with that.  ^_^  I used the freezer paper stencil method on a store-bought tote and fabric paint.


I found the design online.  The design is done in layers, starting with the green, which had some shimmer to it.  I'm not sure the order of the other colors.  I painted in the white accents with a brush at the end and glued on a bow for a little added interest.


Here is the bag in its entirety. 



Thanks for looking!

I received some lovely cards today!

From Mod35TBabe for Artists Choice:

A stamped and embossed dragonfly on a really pretty background. 

From RobinPich for Harry Potter ABCs:

T is for Time Turner and R is for the faces of Ron!  Aren't they cool!

And a personal swap from Brackish Potato that I thought I'd share with you all.  She sent me a dragon and one for my Harry Potter ABCs:

I love the burned edges on the dragon card and its so well drawn!  And look at the crocheted owl!  How cool!!!


And a extra!  An owl magnet since the owl got too big to fit on an ATC.  Yay!

Thanks for all the wonderful ATCs, ladies!

Thanks, ladies!  <3

Here is another lady who is great with watercolors!  I received from gozer for my wings/mythical creatures theme.


A faerie!  Isn't she cute!!!  The little stars/glitter points behind her are shiny.  When I pulled her out my husband was disappointed that she wasn't naked.  LOL!  I told him that she's a not mermaid, she's a faerie!

Mod35TBabe asked me to post a picture of the ATC I sent her.  I claimed her for her Old Hollywood Glamour theme.

Backstory!  One of the very first ATCs I ever made (in the May swap) was for LolaandBean, and I did a watercolor of Audrey Hepburn.  When I made it, I did a bunch on one sheet to see which would turn out the best.  They were all good, actually, but some pictures work better than others.  So I saved the rest for future ATC use, and it finally came!

Looks like I will start us off! 

I hit the mother lode with cards from MadHatteh!  She did 3 of my Harry Potter ABCs, my wine theme, and artist's choice.


Look at all those lovelies!  She did a great job!  Thanks MadHatteh!
